Izakaya Tori is a Yakitori and sake restaurant located in Marickville. It is to make it comfortable to experience the dining experience locally that we could only enjoy by going out of a complex city. In addition to yakitori, we can enjoy a variety of main dishes, sushi and sashimi, from small plates that can be enjoyed with alcohol. The menu index is small, but the various special menus prepared by the head chef every day do not give you time to get bored. We hope it will be a place to visit and enjoy comfortably with friends, family, and lovers.

    Excellent food for our party of 6 to celebrate a 17th Birthday. Our birthday girl selected Izakaya Tori on a recent walk past, and it did not disappoint. Food was super tasty, very interesting and unique. We did not leave any leftovers. Keep up your good work !

    Very nice decor, ambience and great service. Situated where the renovated metro shopping centre is. Sashimi, wombok salad, Tokyo fried rice were highlights- fresh and delicious. Some skewers came out dry- wagyu, prawns. Could improve by giving 2 options of marinade/dressing on skewers or plain as some were quite bland like the vegetable skewers. We tend to over order to try a bit of everything and in this case the skewers became cold as everything came out very quickly and almost all at once.

    Fantastic service, very professional and delicious food, karage chicken was the best I've had in a long time and well priced for the size of the serving, super fresh sushi that's a little pricy but worth it

    The grilled are excellent. Waygu beef is perfect. The staff were great but the initial service was a bit slow due to the restaurant being busy at the time we dined in. However, it got better after. We would definitely come back to this restaurant again.

    Came near closing so could not enjoyed the izakaya style. Drinking, chilling while slowly eating the food (next time i’ll come earlier) Some of the yakitori i ordered are over salted. While others are perfectly seasoned. The tare is nice, not too sweet nor salty. Just right. Service is great. The skewers size is larger than the traditional Yakitori joint. Will come again in the future if im near the restaurant

    Great food and service! The tori sticks are all delicious, especially the wagyu skewer! The fruit sake is also very nice. We sat outside so it was a little noisy from the belly dancer at the restaurant next door, otherwise it was perfect.

    A table of 10 people for a Birthday. No service, Yakitori chicken was not cooked, the rice we ordered at the beginning came when we finished the food and the table was cleared for the cake.

    The food was very good. The miso black cod recommended by other was excellent, as was the tuna tadaki. The food came out quickly but once we had received all our food, the staff never came back to clear the table or offer dessert. We had to go to the counter to pay.

    We went here as a family of 5 adults as the reviews were so good. Well, they were spot on. The food here was simply outstanding. The standout was the actual large sashimi platter. There was fish on there I've never seen or tasted before. Including octopus, oysters, bonito and so much more. The tuna tadaki was another standout. Prepared perfectly it just melted in your mouth. The wagyu beef steak was cooked perfectly and the miso black cod was unreal. Everything we had was delicious. And the best part, it's very well priced. The decor here is also very modern Japanese style and fits in with the vibe of the area. . I thought the Japanese in my local area was amazing but this was outstanding. I would definitely make the effort to go back.

    Pork belly and bean sprouts fry is too salty and chicken breast yakitori is too dry. Compare with other yakitori cuisine, their food quality is worse. Restaurant vibe is good. Satisfied with their kind service
